' aaa .ilidfory Six years ago these patient halls of leaming were blessed with the arrival of some new students. Toddling down from Central were: lim Bishop, Derwood Cames, Paul Carter, Gene Coffman, Mary Anna Culkin, Betty Embrey, Barbara Forte, Bob Fox, Donna Irwin, Margie HMWILLIAMS Iohnson, Barbara Karbe, lerold Kyser, Ellen Lane, Mary Iennings Fansler, Minnie Parsons Maskiell, Donald Patter- son, George Weldon, Betty Williams, Phyllis Williams, Bob Wood and Bob Wright. ' Trudging over from Benton came: Don Anderson, Mary Alice Dabbs, Patty Gibson, Price Landis, Carroll Mace, Bill McKnight, lack Prickett, Robert Taylor, Rosemary Tomlin, and Frankie West. Skipping across from Field were: Gene Allen, Norman Bolin, Lucille Harpool, Betty Hays, Ella Mae Kytle, Ilah lean Lewis, Lenngjgyne. George Tack, ' Wilson. N. H. S. also got that year lean Hoppas from Thomasville, Missouri: Don Reynolds from Enid, Oklahoma: Margaret Rton from Cave Springs: and Lorene Sawyer from Eastview. In the eighth grade two more joined us: Hugh Roy from Ragan and Clinton Harrison from Denver. These past two years were extremely trying to both the students and the faculty and to make matters worse in the ninth grade we gathered into the fold the following: from Kid- doo, Margie Anderson, Iunior Lediord, Marie Walden, and Ioanne Peck. Audrey Crews, Iohn Wade, Mary lane Mueller, Nola lean Reding, Tommie Russell, and Russell Tarvin from Belfast. From Hilldale were Dorothy Kimbrough and Iean McMahan. Iames Herrin and Madeline Corcoran from McEl- hany: Iwana Barnes from Round Prairie: Marjorie Buchanan from Cave Springs: Iohn Shadwick from Edgewood: Rose- mary Sweeney from Rogan: and Elva Ledbetter from Mor- row, Arkansas. Up to now our lives had been noticeably uneventful- the greatest event having been the descent from the balcony to the main floor of the auditorium in the ninth grade. Now that we were Sophomores we knew things were certain to start happening. That year we 'received such notables as: Ray Callahan from Detroit, Michigan: Marie Brasiola from Delta, Ohio: Frank Reynolds of Webster Groves, Missouri: Thomas Roberts from Granby: Iohn Mustion from Elk Creek: Pearl Allen from Heber Springs, Arkansas: and Doris Sager from Westview. In the Iunior year we were joined by Harold Barbee from Guthrie, Oklahoma: Mary Lee Belmont from Westview: lean Dale from Adrian, Missouri: Anna Gudmundsson from Cali- FRANK REYNOLDS BARBARA KARBE patria, California: lmogene Hays from Licking, Missouri: Lois King from Stella: Pat McCauley from Iacksonville, Florida: Allen Porter from Ninety-Six, South Carolina: Doris Stark and Iim Williams from Westview: and Dick Walker from Ottawa, Kansas. The Iunior Play was just ooooooozing with talent. There were such celebrated actors and actresses as: George Wel- don, Margie Anderson, Carroll Mace, Phyllis Williams, Price Landis, Bob Wright, Barbara Karbe, Mary Alice Dabbs, Rus- sell Windes, Margie Iohnson, Barbara Forte, and Betty Embrey. This superb cast presented "Every Family Has One." lt was directed by Mrs. Robert Barrett, assisted by Betty Williams. Don Anderson was elected Vice-President and Barbara Forte, Assistant Treasurer in our Iunior Year. ' ' ' iors was a great success. The hall was decorated in pastel colors with silhouettes of musical instruments on the walls. Our Senior year came in with a banglll Through the intelligence of certain members of the class a new word has been coined. tl bet Webster is just green with envy.l The word is "l-libbie" and its meaning is so pliable that it can replace the entire unabridged dictionary. This year our class was reimbursed by these people: Prunty Campbell from Brady, Texas: Willadean Ballentine from Diamond: Gene Bunch from Stella: and Troy Redman from Walnut Ridge, Arkansas. Don Anderson was elected president of the student body and Patty Gibson as Secretary. We elected these two by an overwhelming majority after a rousing and heated campaign. The Seniors and All-Stars in both basketball and football, "our heroes" in the sports field, were: Don Anderson, Iack Prickett, George Tock, Russell Tarvin, lim Williams, Bob Wright, Dick Walker and Frank Reynolds. S Barbara Forte and Iirn Williams were elected by the team as Football Queen and Captain respectively. Senior candi- dates for King and Oueen by the annual were lim Williams and Betty Embrey. The Senior play has not been chosen, but we all are looking forward to a presentation as fine as the one given last year by our class. Several boys who would have graduated with us are now serving in the armed forces. They are: lim Adams, Ben Beeler, Marian Brill, Bob Hulsey, I. C. Mounce, Delbert Rogers, Iunior Severs, Lewis Tomlin, Lavoy Davis and Homer Roy. The latter having been killed in action in Belgium.

' DRA ATIC CL B "What tools these mortals be, but what fun they have." These are Words a Wise-cracking Dramatics Club member might add to a famous quotation in answer to roll call. After one has passed the rather rigid qualifications required of Dramatics Club members, the inevitable initiation arises. Bobbie sox and bow ties are discarded and the costumes of famous literary characters are donned instead. Four committees. are appointed which give a proqram every four Weeks. They range from hiqhly-comical pantomime-s to seri- ous speeches on trxzrous people of the past. Such a popular organization requires a popular sponsor: Mrs, Barrett fits these qualifications perfectly. OFFICERS President ......... George Weldon Vice-President . . . .

Mrs. Elliott Hagan They say journalists who snoop at keyholes, hide be- hind chairs to eavesdrop, are always at the right places at the wrong moments or vice-versa. Far be it from us to dispute their word! Reporters are especially subdued persons. As proof, we give you this scene: "Pass, worthy master, your unworthy servant shrinks from thy footsteps." Reporters are on bended knee as the editor enters the roorn. We wish Hagan would stop this: our knees are sore! Nevertheless, many "green" reporters have developed into very good first class journalists so don't be surprised it in years to come you read a story having the by-line of some poor soul on the "Meow" staff. li the "Wildcats Meow" has not been all that the student body wants in its school paper, the reasons are not difficult to find. ln conclusion we turn to this saying, "You can say a lot more with a nod of approval than a lot ot words." We nod and it is agreed. FIRST ROW:.B. Forte-President it W. I. Land it R. Lowe SCT B. Embrey Tff I. A. Hammond it Mrs. Hancock- Sponsor. SECOND ROW: B. I. Haas ii? O. Naramore if M. L.

Consisting of athletic lettermen, it is strictly a masculine organization. ln it are members of the football, basket- ball and track squads. Being elected president of the "N" Club is an honor equal to being Captain-elect of the football or basketball squad. The main activity of the year is the initiation oi the new lettermen. This club is notorious for its initiation, only a part of which the student body is allowed to witness. After undergoing the full initiation, the new member is eligible to partcipate in the various activities of the club. These include dances, parties and the school assembly which this organization presents. pee! gigkf X PORT N R XX Q S Y 'N j00iL6J Queen The Trcxdltlonal Kxss' BARBARA FORTE CROWNING THE QUEEN 4 E 1 .

MIXED Cllllli Mixed Chorus is one of the largest and best known organizations on the campus. They are :very active during the Christ- mas season and this year they presented a most impressive Christmas program. During the last two Christmas seasons they have been in demand at the Camp Hospital where they have brought happiness with their music to the sick soldiers. They participate in assemblies, sing for church programs and other outside activities. The seventy-five people in mixed chorus are very fond and proud -of their instructor, Mrs. Lane, and are looking forward to working with her next year. The sextet is a choice group of girls that sing when the larger group is not available. They have sung at Camp Crowder several times. Mrs. Lane, the instructor, plans to enlarge this group, makinqfa select Girls Choir. Four of these girls will be members of a mixed quartette.

Yes, you've seen us around. We attended all the football games and some of the basketball games this year. Although there were many difficulties and some disappointments, we think all in all it has been a prosperous year. New formations and plans have been introduced, among them, the most successful were the dif- ferent service insignias. Our group also took a small part in the political campaigns though we were neutral as to parties. The organization has been successful this year and even after our Maior's illness the girls carried on. A good thing about the organization, it is made up of younger girls who will be in N. H. S, for a long time yet. We'll have to step along now but we'll be seeing you next football season, THE HI-HATTERS 1 on Dick QNQ M! ss Clinton .Gene N Harrison Allen W I' A.
